Nikon D80 Camera Giveaway!

I have been wanting to do a really fun giveaway on this blog forever, and I happened to get this opportunity! :) QuickPro Camera Guides and Alexis Miller Photography are teaming up to give away this Nikon D80 with a Nikon 24-85mm Lens! ETA: This lens is the 3.5 one, not the 2.8 one - just don't want any confusion! The camera was used only for a few hours during the filming of the QuickPro Camera Guide for the Nikon D80, so it is used, but not very much! I am excited to give it away because I love how much my cameras have changed my life, and I hope that someone will love this camera and taking pictures with it as much as I do!

Here are the rules for this giveaway. For one entry into the giveaway contest:
  1. You must be a follower of this blog.
  2. Leave a comment on this post before Midnight MST on Thursday March 18, 2010. Tell us why you want to win this camera.

And, if you would like one extra entry to the contest, post a link to this blog somewhere online (your blog, message board, facebook, etc.). Then, post a comment with a link to your link on this post.

I recently acquired a partner in my business and would love to have this camera for her to use as a backup.
AWESOME give-away. :c) You're going to make some lucky commenter very lucky!!

Megan Wold said...

Alexis,
It is so great that you are able to help out fellow photography lovers by offering giveaways such as this one. I would love to be the winner of this camera for so many reasons, first I would love to capture more images of my daughter as she grows and explores the world some more. Secondly, I am currently trying to get into the business of "NICU Photography". Offering complimentary portraits of newborns, premies and other infants that are ill or may not make it much longer to their families, and this camera would help aid me in giving those families better quality images.

Kelly said...

Wow! Great giveaway! I am at the taking it all in stage with photography, reading everything I can find, and taking tons and TONS of pictures. I have learned a whole lot in the year since we bought our entry-level and used dslr camera. I would love to have this camera to take it to the next level.

Kenzi Dawn said...

What an awesome giveaway!!! I would love to have a D80!!! I am currently using a D60, but would love to use it as a backup! Oh, I would love to win this prize!!!

studio four13 said...

Wow this giveaway is amazing. Good luck to the winner!

porchsitter said...

I'd love to win this camera so I could have one just for me...not for business/work but all for me. That would just be amazing!

cherie said...

Would love to have this camera . My husband and I love to shoot together and this would be great .What a generous giveaway !

Karly said...

I would love to win this! My husband is always stealing my camera so that he can practice, but it would be great if he had his own. This would also make a sweet back up camera!

Debra said...

great giveaway!!! while i am a canon girl i think i would love to have this so that i could give it to my sister. she has always been there for me and has been my best friend and i know how badly she would like to get better images of her kids. she is using a small measly little kodak digital and has always wanted a better quality camera such as this...

Lanaia said...

Wow - that's generous of you!!!

I recently got offered to shoot a wedding and I'd love to do it but without a backup camera I'm scared. You never know - you know :)

Nadine said...

Hi,
The reason why I wish to win this camera is that it would be a great start for me and my future as a photographer. 2011 I am planning to start studying Photography in Lisbon/Portugal and this would be the perfect present for me...

Ahauna said...

I just got interested (obsessed!) in photography a couple of years ago. Since then, I have taken thousands of pictures of my kids, dogs, nature, etc., bought PSE though I still haven't really figured it out to reach its fullest potential, books on photography and read the internet trying to soak up everything there is to learn.

I would love, love, LOVE to win this Nikon to bring my photos and what I've learned to a whole new level.

Even if I don't win it, I think you are awesome for giving someone the chance!

bdaiss said...

Oh wow. What a fabulous (and major league generous!) giveaway!

I'd love to win. I've been living in the realm of an upscale point and shoot (Canon SX100 IS). I've learned so much from you and my other research that I've reached the point I've outgrown my camera. I've been dreaming of upgrading to a DSLR, but with a new baby it's remained a dream (the finances just aren't there). Thanks for the opportunity to make that dream reality!

audrey said...

I would love to win this camera because I once had a DSLR with a few lenses, a flash, hoods, filters, all that good stuff that I had to sell to put myself through paramedic school. I have 8 weeks of school left and am now staring a divorce straight in the face and I don't know when I will get the chance to replace my equipment. I rarely take photos anymore b/c my P&S just doesn't do it for me. If I won this camera I would seriously cry.

Katie said...

Wow! What an amazing giveaway!

I would love to win this camera so I can take my photography to the next level. I have been using my D40 for over a year now, and while I love it dearly, I'm starting to feel its limitations. Something that handles noise well over ISO 400? Yes please!

Jake and Rachelle said...

I'm trying to learn as much as I can about photography. I love to take pictures! I really hope to start my own business soon, but my current camera just won't cut it. Thanks for the chance to win!

Tomboymama said...

Wow, a great giveaway. I would love to win this camera for my daughter. She is 17 and is very into photography and digital arts. She shares my camera now, but she will be going off to college in the fall and she would be so excited to have her own DSLR.

Paparazzimommy_Dayna said...

oh my gosh Alexis!!! this is so cool! my 6 yr old minolta is on her last legs (viewfinder has been broke for 2 years and i randomly don't record shots!!) I have been thinking about making a switch and this would do it for me!!!

Katie said...

Thank you :)

Julie Livermore said...

I am portfolio building and saving, saving, saving for a new camera!!!! Would be heavenly to win one (and then maybe splurge on a lens, lol).

Melissa said...

I'd love to win so I can develop better skills on a DSSLR. I currently have a Canon PowerShot S5 and I play with the settings to take shots all the time, and those with photographic skills tell me that they are amazed with the Point and Shoot shots I get and encourage me to move up to a better camera, but financially, it's just not in the cards right now. Fingers crossed that I win this so I can set on the course of learning to take amazing shots of my 3-year-old son and others!

Amber said...

Here's my attempt to spread the word...

Lainey's Mom said...

I REALLY want to learn how to take better pictures of my munchkins and with a 3 year old and a 1 year old, a dslr is necessary!

Rose said...

I would Love this camera to have a back up for me as well as be able to have my husband accompany me and we can take pictures together!!! How fun would that be! hehe.. Great giveaway!!!

BEB9872 said...

WOW! What a very sweet thing to do! Thank you so much! I would love to win this camera for a friend of mine. She is really having a difficult time financially and could never afford something like this. Her dream is to get into photography but, she feels that's a dream she'll never reach. She has always been there for me and a such a great friend.

Julie Newby said...

I would love to win this camera. I have been wanting to start a part time photography business! Thank you!

I am a follower!

Nicki, said...

I can't believe this - of all the times for my MAC to melt down - Pioneer Woman running a cat photo assignment (and I've got cats to spare) and you doing a D80 giveaway (my daughter is dying to get into photography to share my hobby). I suspect I am too late - but if not, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to be entered.

Either way - thank you for your never-ending generosity.

Annie said...

that is AMAZING!!!!

I would love to have this camera!

Sarah Phillips said...

I shoot with a D300 and as much as I'd like a back up, if I won, I'd give this camera to my sister. She loves taking pictures and has a great eye. They've had a hard couple of years though and buying a nice camera is something she can't do.

Barbara said...

Oh, I would heart to win this camera... I have a D40, which is a great camera and I have had SO much enjoyment with it. But, it has one little teeny tiny drawback: I recently got a 50mm lens, and with this camera body, it's not autofocus. I'm getting quite acquainted with the little green in-focus dot, but I'm 51. The eyes aren't what they used to be, especially when squinting!

Katie's mom-Max's Grammie said...

I would love to win this camera for my daughter who is such a wonderful photographer in need of a new camera.

The Hoffman Family said...

I would love to win this camera! I can't believe you are giving it up! I would def. use it to take pics of my 4 little boys!

Dee A said...

First of all, thank you for this opportunity. Second, if I were to win this awesome gift, I would give it to a young girl I know who is debating on going in to photography. Regardless if she decided to not go professional, she has a great gift of photography, but needs the right equipment.

Thank you!!

TREZmom said...

My husband is deploying to Afghanistan and this would make an amazing coming home gift for him. I am the family photographer but he has learned almost as much as me, so it would be a great opportunity for him to get into the action.

This is an amazing, generous giveaway! Thank you.

angie said...

i would love to win this camera so i could take great photos of my daughter. thanks for the chance!

Ms.Kristi said...

I've had my eye on the D80 for quote some time now, but with 3 under 3... it's just not a priority unfortunately.

I would love to win this because I am SO READY to make the jump from Sony to Nikon!! It would be AWESOME!!

Barbara said...

I would love to win this camera.!Mainly because my camera is practically attached to me. My husband and kids love to take photos as well, so it would be nice if we had one they could have available to use as well. I'm stil learning (and probably always will be), but I think it would be awesome if my kids could learn at at early age.
Great give-away!

Sarah said...

I'd love to win this camera - not to keep for myself, but to give to a dear friend who wants to start her own business. She just finished grad school and can't afford a camera, but I know how much good use she'd get out of it. Thanks, Alexis!!!

Thistle Creek Photography said...

Sweet giveaway!

Currently I'm shooting with a d40, and I'd love to bump up to a new level, but really the money is just not there. My car is finally fixed, but now we need a new washing machine. My husband wants so badly to let me upgrade, but there is always something that we really need before I can upgrade my camera and lenses. Winning a better camera would be amazing!

Danielle said...

what a great thing you are doing. I would love this camera. I have been wanting to upgrade my camera for a very long time and haven't been able to since we are dedicating all our resources to getting my husband through grad school. My wants have been put on hold for the time being and it will be 2 years before I can even think about upgrading.

jervell said...

oh man. I would love to be able to upgrade to a body with an AF motor. I didn't realize how important that one little detail is!

Mary Lynn said...

I posted about the giveaway on my blog, twitter, and facebook. I know that's still just one entry ... just did it at all 3 places.

sunnie2004 said...

Jennifer said...

One of my dear friends introduced me to the blogging world,introdiced me to lots of great photography out there, and encouraged me to take my first class to help me get my D80 off AUTO. She doesnt have a DSLR yet, if I win I would give it to her. Thanks for the chance!

Kim said...

I would absolutely *LOVE* this camera!! What an awesome giveaway! I am thinking of taking some classes for photography and this would be an AWESOME camera to learn with. I've done a few shoots, but my eventual hope is to finally be able to be a stay at home mom with my daughter and have a small photography business when she goes to Kindergarten.

Jenn said...

I would love to win this camera to take it with me on a missions trip to a Latvian orphanage with me. The camera would allow us to take images of the children so we could print them out-and give them something that they rarely get! It would be a joy to win!

I would love to win this camera to help tell the story of my family. I love capturing the moments that make us us!

Thanks for the chance to win I love your blog!

thom said...

I'd like the camera because I'm tired of 'making do' with what I can barely afford. It gets frustrating to be so limited.

Great blog!

Nat said...

I would love this camera b/c I want to take my photography to the next level. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

Jennie said...

Oh WOW! What an amazing giveaway! I would seriously LOVE to have that camera! I got my first SLR last summer and I got the best camera I could for the amount of money I could spend on it. I like my Nikon D40 but have been very envious of others and their "better" cameras. i can't afford to upgrade but desperately want to. This camera would help me to do that.

Thanks for a fantastic giveaway! You rock and I can't wait to get updates for your blog entries!

lifegrins said...

I've followed you on Facebook for a while and I love your blog! I don't deserve this more than anyone else, but when I saw your giveaway, I knew I had to try. I am so filled with expectation and business ideas, but I feel so limited between what I think I need and what is affordable. With this upgrade, there'll be no stopping me!
Here's the address to my blog where I will post a link to yours:

I'll also link it on Facebook.

Jami said...

Oh my gosh!!! This is an awesome giveaway. I would love to win....I shoot Canon and probably can't switch at this point, but I would LOVE to be able to give this camera to a dear friend of mine that could really use it. Thank you! Here's a link to my FB page where I posted about your giveaway too. http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=1001392536&ref=nf

Michelle said...

Wow, awesome give away! I'd love to win a D80! I shoot with a D40 and it needs repairing. Every picture has a grey dot in it. A new D80 would be much better than sending it off for repair. :)

Carolyn said...

Alexis, you are AMAZING! I love your blog.

My husband and daughter are really getting into photography -- by osmosis, I think -- and my daughter is showing some talent for it. I would really love to win this camera so they could use it and then we could do photo shoots as a family.

Staci Brock said...

Marylin said...

What a wonderful giveaway!

I'd love to get a D80, because I've done everything I can with my D60.

I mainly take photos of little ones and trying to manual focus on those constantly moving little people is HARD!

Love the blog, BTW!

I would love to win this camera because we can't afford one and have been using this cheap camera forever. We have five children and our 6th one is due anyday and would just treasure this gift forever, being able to take such clear and perfect pictures. Thanks!

I would like to win this camera because I am starting to teach a few kids how to use P&S and DSLR, take care of them and some begining photography. They could all share this one and still use the one I have. It would make it a little easier for them to have hands on.

Thanks for the chance

Wow - a great giveaway. I would love to win this camera. I currently only have a small camera that isn't very consistent or high quality. I would love to learn more about photography with a cool camera. It would be cool to combine my digital photocard business with photography. I'm all about capturing the everyday moments with my 4 kids and husband. I love my beautiful, Ordinary life! ~ Heather D.S.

I would love to win this to give to my sweet sil who is so giving. Her camera is broken and she has three daughters..so lots of need to take pictures. She is a sweetheart and I would love to be able to give her a gift like this.

Erin said...

I would love to win this camera because i have a newborn daughter at home and would like to take some great pictures of her. I have tweeted about this contest. http://twitter.com/erin__r

Hayley @ When I Grow UP said...

Oh how amazing it would be to win this camera. I've always been a "strictly Canon" user, but I understand there is a great deal I am missing. In addition, my current camera takes such abuse, as I don't think there is a day that goes by that I am not taking pictures. With my first professional wedding coming up in April, I would love the security of owning a "backup." Thank you for this opportunity. Good luck to everyone who has entered!

Spencer+Kellie said...

I would love this camera! I am a photog for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and I am always so nervous not having a back up camera. Plus this camera doesn't have the lens limitations that my D60 has!

Autumn & Chris said...

I would love this camera. Awesome give away!!!

amy said...

Whoa! Nice giveaway...I love all the ideas on your blog! I would like to win this camera as an upgrade from what I already have. I'm excited for something new to keep my photography motivation going.

Tara Jeles said...

This would be wonderful for my husband who is wanting to join my business as a second shooter. I've had so many requests for one and he is really starting to love photography. I would love to win this so much! Ok, so he would love it, but doesn't even know about the contest!! i would love to surprise him with it. thanks :)

Mikol said...

What an awesome giveaway! I would love to graduate from my little digital point and shoot to a real camera. Thanks for the opportunity.

joyphotos@aol.com said...

Wow! What an incredible opportunity. As a photographer who just opened my own studio 9 months ago, this would make a HUGE change for my business. Having no back up camera keeps me from booking weddings and makes running the business a little more nerve wracking than I would like - especially when my camera breaks down! Hoping this will take my business to the next level!

Here's the link to my facebook page with the link to your blog:

Erica Hanks said...

Yay Alexis!! SO FUN! I am a Nikon Girl and would LOVE an upgrade to the D80!! It would totally make my day!! (Oooo...and wouldn't it be a FAB Anniversary gift! My 10 year anniversary is the 18th! WOO HOO!)

Sara said...

Wow, what a generous giveaway. I would LOVE to win this camera. I currently have a Sony A100 and have been considering an upgrade - this would be awesome!

Cindy said...

What a wonderful giveaway. :-) If I won this camera I would be able to shoot in something other than Auto. lol Apparently, little Mr. "I-promise-I-didn't-do it" spilled something sticky on my camera and non of the dials will turn. I cant change focal points, aperature, or anything so my fancy dslr in nothing more than a POS until I get the money to replace it..which isn't anytime soon. :-( So, it would make my year to win.

Thanks!!

~Kari AND Blair~ said...

Love your blog...Love your tips...would Love this D80!!

Natalie said...

oh my goodness! i have always loved photography but never had the money to get a good camera. i would LOVE to finally be able to pursue my dream!!

The J Fam~ said...

I have a 80, and my 12 year old daughter practically runs it better then me, she loves taking photos, I would love to be able to share this with her and inspire her to build her talents!!!!!!!

Jo Murray said...

I would love to have a backup camera.

Ruthie said...

I just joined the world of DSLR's about a year ago and little did I know that my 17 year old daughter would become become enthralled with photography once she picked up my camera and started taking pictures. She uses my camera more than I do, and I'm lucky if I get a chance to use it myself at all. She is graduating from high school this spring and I would love to send her off to college with her own camera so she can continue to do something she loves (and I can have MY camera back).Thanks for this generous gesture. You will make someone very happy.

Kallie said...

Oohh! New camera! That would be so awesome!

Reno Girl said...

Awesome contest Alexis!! I would love this camera! I have been dreaming of getting a DSLR camera for years! I have made do with a Fuji FinePix but there is so much I can't do without a DSLR. I posted my very first blog to help my chances at winning, and it wasn't that hard, you can see it here

McNew Family said...

I am a follower of your lovely blog and I would LOVE to win this outstanding camera! My 16 year old son and I are always seeing who can grab my Rebel first to shoot something. I think he has talent as a photography and enjoy sharing his shots more than mine on our family blog! Plus, with two adorable 4 year olds in the house, one camera is never enough!

Thanks for sharing your wisdom and talent AND the opportunity to win a "new" camera!

Christi said...

Wow! Awesome giveaway. Thanks for the chance. I'm a follower. I would love to win this camera so I could continue my passion for photography by learning about the Nikon.

Effie May said...

I would love to win this camera so I could give it to my daughter. I shoot Nikon but do not have a backup camera for her to use and we cannot afford a dslr for her at this time. She has one daughter and another baby on the way and has expressed an interest (finally) in learning to improve her photos. It would be great for her and we could share lenses. a win-win situation for sure!!

Suzy said...

I am in awe.. I have never won anything in my entire life and can't believe your giving away a camera! I would LOVE this and NEED it so much!! Thanks for being so generous!

Jennifer said...

Right now I have the Pentax K200D I've been wanting to jump ship to Nikon for awhile, but can't justify the cost-I would LOVE to win this!!!

Effie May said...

Janet said...

Wow! I'm speachless! What an awesome oportunity to take photography to the next level. I'm still learning and taking everything one step at a time - lots of trial and error. I'm enjoying the process and getting some great shots too! Thanks again for all the tips and for the awesome chance at a great camera!

I would love to win this camera and lens because I'm ready for an upgrade. I've been shooting with a D40 and only two lenses(18-55 and 55-200) for 2.5 years. Thanks for such a awesome, generous giveaway. Here's a link to my FB profile, where I linked to your blog. :)

I would LOVE this camera because I'd love to upgrade and I am DYING for an 85mm lens! I follow your blog :)

April W said...

I have been a follower of yours on bloglines forever! I would love to win this camera because I am a canon girl. I have never tried a Nikon, and I would love to see the difference. I would never be able to afford another camera just to try, so it would be cool to win!

Mommaspoppa2004 said...

I would love to win this so my hubby and I can both have a camera 100% of the time instead of trying to share one. Thanks!

Roxie said...

Ever since I can remember I’ve always carried a Camera with me and taken pictures of everything. I’ve been a Librarian for four years and I love it but I feel like there is something missing. I would love to win this camera so I can start my photography business. I’ve been saving for a camera for four months now this would be a blessing. I want to take my pictures to the next level. I think this is a great contest you will certainly make someone very happy.

Robins Family said...

Wow! You are so fabulous Alexis! What a awesome give away!! Would love to be a winner! :)

sheri allison said...

I would love a new camera. Then I could use my old one as a backup only!

Loving Washington said...

Wow, this is an AMAZING giveaway! I'd be lying if I said I followed this blog often, but I know exactly why I would want to win this camera giveaway.

My husband is currently deployed and missing out on a full year of our girls' lives (ages 4 months, 18 months, and 3 in June). He is always wanting to do things for me, including buying a more professional camera than my little Sony Cybershot that keeps breaking on me. He wants to purchase a new camera after deployment and it would be a joy to surprise him when he comes home by having one already. Joshua was able to come home to see our newest daughter (Caoimhe) three days after she was born, but he was only home for 14 days. He's missed out on the first year of our first born as well (due to Army training) and it would be wonderful to send him clear photographs of the girls he is missing and longing to come home to at the end of this deployment.

Shauna said...

Because my fantastically awesome husband has finally showed a spectacular interest in photography alongside me!!! Yea!!

We're always fighting over my camera! It's a constant dash to see who can get to the camera first! I'm thinking this would solve the problem!!?

P.S. I am a follower of this blog and thank you for hosting this mad-fab giveaway!!!

sphinx63 said...

I'm a follower... I would love to win this camera because I have just started getting into photography as a hobby, and I don't have a great camera yet. I am using a Panasonic LZ3 right now. Thanks for the chance!

Allison said...

What a fantastic giveaway! Wow!!

I have been looking for an excuse to enroll in a photography class for AWHILE now...if I got a fancy new camera I think that would be a pretty excellent excuse :)

Tug said...

I would love this camera so I can give the one I've borrowed from my daughter back to her. (She's probably appreciate it as well.) ;-)

Angela said...

I'm a follower now for sure. As much as I would love this camera, I really hope my friend Heather Smith in Utah wins it. She's been wanting one forever and I know she'd take great photos with it.

Right now I'm using a Cannon Rebel XSi, but the only camera I've ever wanted is a Nikon! Please, please, please! All of our extra dollars are going to adopt a baby, so it'll be a LONG time until I get my Nikon!

Lindsay said...

I have a 2 1/2 year old and a new baby due any minute (literally, I actually think I might be in labour now but a friend told me about this and I had to come post anyway haha). I love taking pictures of kids and would love a better camera to get some great shots of the two of them. I'd also like to start taking pictures professionally eventually to be able to make money while still having flexible hours and being able to stay home with the kids.

I'm on a Mac and the "follow" section of the blog doesn't seem to be showing, but I've got your blog on my newsfeed, does that count? If not, I'll have to add it next time I'm on a PC.

Lindsay said...

I just posted the link to your blog on my blog for an extra entry too. :)

I would love to win this gorgeous camera. My husband and I would be able to stop fighting over who gets to play with the one we have and each have our own. Now that would be a sweet day... :)

Eric and Danielle said...

This is an awesome giveaway. I have been trying to get my photography on the next level and I know that this would totally help. My husband is also very interested in photography and we have 2 wonderful children to take photos of when we can get them to sit still long enough.

I would love to win this camera because there is a whole world out there ready to be captured. :)

I posted this on my blog too.

Shelley said...

Been ready to upgrade my camera for a while. Being married to a full-time student means that such things are on hold. This would be such a fun way to be able to do what I want to do!! Yay for givaways!

Danielle said...

My husband is graduating from Dental School this summer and I would love to have a way to document our new life as a non-student family!
